Gigaclear Bring 10Gbps Fibre Optic Broadband to Oxfordshire Business Park

Friday, March 14th, 2014 (1:10 pm) - Score 1,121

Fibre optic broadband ISP Gigaclear has announced that firms on the Kingston Business Park (Kingston Bagpuize) in Oxfordshire now have the ability to order an up to 10,000Mbps (Megabits per second) capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) based Internet service, which is a lot better than BT’s old up to 8Mbps ADSL connectivity.

The Kingston Business Park is a fairly well established estate that has recently been subject to a redevelopment programme, including a new link road to the A415 and new circuit road within the scheme. The site now compromises a number of office units available in a range of sizes.

But until recently the only consumer grade connectivity available in this area has been a bog standard ADSL Max (up to 8Mbps) service from BT’s platform on the local LONGWORTH telephone exchange. Admittedly local businesses could have ordered a leased line but the connection and rental charges combined might easily break the bank (examples).

Not that Gigaclear’s alternative is cheap. The ISPs top uncontended 10Gbps package will still cost £6,000 +vat to install and attracts a rental of £19,990 per month, although crucially they’re also able to offer a range of much more affordable 50Mbps and faster packages from £59 per month (£200 connection) and that’s likely to attract smaller firms more than the biggest pipe.

Matthew Hare, CEO of Gigaclear, said:

The debate on broadband services in rural communities is about more than just technology. It is about provisioning for a sustainable economic future for those who wish to live and work in counties like Oxfordshire. Broadband is an essential utility for businesses today – having poor broadband in a business park is akin to building the park without electricity. By implementing ultrafast broadband, Kingston Business Park businesses are benefiting from world class technology within their preferred geographic location.”

It’s interesting to note that at least one of the local businesses, Newton Europe, chose the rural park precisely because Gigaclear’s service was there. “Taking a leased line in a rural location would have been prohibitively expensive but with Gigaclear we have what we need,” said Greig Harper, the firms IT Manager.

Gigaclear has a number of rural focused FTTP developments in Oxfordshire and so it makes sense for them to expand into any available business parks that might crop up along the way. Apparently the Kingston Business Park went live with Gigaclear in September 2013 but we’re only hearing about it now.
